    Easyfundraising & Easysearch

    After another wet and windy Sunday you might be thinking about a weekend away, some DVDs to watch or books to read over the Scottish Summer. Whatever you purchase online please do so through easyfundraising as that raises funds for our club: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ I know we have differences about things on here but we are Thistle fans so lets do something, at no extra cost to ourselves, which benefits our club. Thanks for your support!

    I think, and I am sure the good lady will correct me if required, the point was what would be better for us in terms of the resources available to either St Mirren or Dundee Utd as rivals.

    Jim, I know that and I agree with it but that was not what was stated. I realise that you knew what Stuart meant (so did I) but the statement made was not precise and I just think it is important we are careful with words.

    Jim, the statement made by Stuart was: "Before the Weirs cash we were trading at a profit and a sustainable business" The period I made reference to was before the Weirs cash so is correct. If Stuart had stated that under a particular Board we traded at a profit and as a sustainable business then I would have agreed. It might seem a little pedantic but I am a civil servant after all. I am fully aware that under David Beattie's chairmanship things were much improved.

    I would have to point out that we had to sell Harkins to pay the taxman and were lucky that Dundee were being run by someone willing to pay over the odds. I also recall a meeting at which our then chairman was lambasted for telling us how much it costs to replace a floodlight bulb and the accounts (easily found on Companies House) do not show profits at that time. That is not to say we, as a club, have not made mistakes recently but let us not rewrite history either.

    A night with GC

    Part 2 of the event on Wednesday evening here: https://ptfc.co.uk/ptfc-news/the-season-ahead-with-gary-caldwell-part-two/ I have been reading here about us having no scouts and there was a little voice in my head saying "I remember something being discussed about scouts" so have a look at this from 1 min 5 seconds in: https://ptfc.co.uk/ptfc-news/update-from-the-chairman-and-manager/

    Season Tickets 2019/20

    With regards to season tickets I asked Gerry Britton at the evening with the manager when these would be on sale and it should be the end of this week or Monday/Tuesday of next week at the latest. When asked if they would be same as last season the answer was Yes. Also a look at the ticket page on the website shows there will still be the option to spread the costs but it will be through a company called Orchard Funding as the previous company, Zebra, went out of business towards the end of last season.

    71 Club

    When I spoke to Gerry Britton on Wednesday evening he said they would be on sale at the end of the next week/start of following week at the latest. So far I am quite happy with our transfer business and it might be that we want to get a few deals done before putting the tickets on sale.

    Joe Cardle signs

    Happy with Cardle signing and the club getting some good business done early which has been an issue in recent seasons. Hopefully Spittal will sign up as well but one way or another I would prefer that to be resolved soon.
